NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Time Warner acknowledged to the Securities and Exchange Commission Tuesday that Charlie Sheen is suing its Warner Bros. unit for $100 million.
Time Warner disclosed to the SEC that Sheen and 9th Step Productions filed the suit on March 10. The blog Footnoted earlier reported on the SEC filing, which came nearly three weeks after the complaint came out.
Sheen sued WB Studio Enterprises, a Time Warner subsidiary three days after his dismissal from the sitcom "Two and a Half Men." Sheen's firing came after a two-week public meltdown that included attacks against Chuck Lorre, the show's co-creator and co-executive producer.
Time Warner's SEC filing noted that Sheen has also filed suit against Chuck Lorre and Chuck Lorre Productions.
According to the filing, Sheen is alleging "several causes of action in connection" with his firing, "including breach of contract claims and intentional interference tort claims."
WB Studios is seeking arbitration over these claims and "intends to vigorously defend against" them.
